From Ravens running back Ray Rice’s arrest for allegedly beating his girlfriend to 49ers’ linebacker arrest on making a terroristic threat, the NFL – like every offseason – has seen its fair share of arrests this year.

But on the local front, things have been pretty positive crime-wise over the past 15 years, according to an NFL arrests database created by UT San Diego.

The database shows since 2000, the Rams and Houston Texans (which entered the league in 2002) have the fewest number of arrests with only nine.

The Minnesota Vikings lead the league with 44 arrests – almost five times more than the Rams - during that same time-frame.

The Rams’ low number of arrests may be a surprise to some, considering Jeff Fisher’s reputation as a coach unafraid to take chances on questionable characters.
